“To be an artist is to believe in life.”
– Henry Moore

We believe the making of art takes artists into the moment where they are held in perfect awareness providing joy and purpose to sustain them in their daily lives.

Our Mission

To explore the art of being human through art-based education and experiences that encourage self-expression

East Side Art Institute is a dynamic new art resource in the Colorado Front Range joining creativity with education, community, and regenerative land management. We are raising funds to build a fully-equipped facility for art education, research, and exhibition.

Our distinctive and inclusive art education program is designed to meet the wide-ranging interests and needs of students. Together we build community with people of diverse backgrounds, providing a welcoming place to meet and connect on a human level through the practice of art.

The semi-rural location of ESAI’s 14-acre campus combines scenic views of the Rocky Mountains with the raw beauty of our natural habitat. We are committed to sustainability and environmentally sound practices in the Arts and in caring for our campus property.
